Barnfind Technologies... Most Accommodating... (SatBroadcasting™—Transport Platform)

[SatNews] NAB 2013 set the stage for the launch of Barnfind Technologies, a new manufacturer that...

...debuted its BarnOne, a revolutionary 1RU multi-functional, signal neutral transport platform developed to accommodate all segments of the broadcast industry. Wiggo Evensen, CEO of the Norwegian company, revealed positive results for Barnfind’s first exhibition and simultaneously announced plans to double its presence at NAB 2014.

“Our first NAB surpassed our expectations by far,” said Evensen. “Attendees from the smallest TV station to the biggest Telco operator crowded our booth to see BarnOne deliver via fiber, 3G, HDMI and CWDM. We are happy to report numerous orders and agreements with many business partners. The results were so overwhelmingly successful that we’ve already booked a booth twice the size for NAB 2014.”

Barnfind demonstrated its flagship BarnOne, a powerful and affordable system that provides up to 32 ports with either 32 x SFPs from various manufacturers offering different capabilities, or a mix with 8 or 16 BNC’s or HDMI/ DVI. The unit features a built in electrical and/or optical router with a flexible configuration of CWDM (8/16ch), DWDM (up to 40ch) or 10Gbit Ethernet trunks. A comprehensive functionality suite includes standard SDI conversion, routing, multiplexing, embedding, add/drop, crossover, distribution, IP to ASI/ASI to IP conversion, STM-1 Telco, MADI, AES, etc., with more to come. All SFP+ cages are 10Gbit ready. BarnOne offers the end-user the unique ability to use any kind of SFP or SMART SFP, opening up a whole new set of options and advantages. In addition to Broadcast and Telco, BarnOne accommodates adjacent markets including Worship, Oil & Gas, Digital Signage, Telemedicine/Healthcare, Education, Government, CCTV/Security, Defense, AV applications, and Entertainment and Sports Events.

Barnfind also received several important initial orders for systems as well as demo units on the show floor. Shipping will commence by the end of June.
